Advanced Western Blotting Solutions for Targeted Protein Degradation Research

Simple Western assays provides you critical information to run quantitative DC50 curves with a high throughput workflow while providing you reproducible and quantifiable data. Simple Western systems and their automated Western blotting capabilities enhance accuracy, ensure data quality, and deliver results. Our systems integrate easily in PROTAC® screening assays while providing you the flexibility of seamless transferability of methods and an open platform.

Precise, Quantitative Data for the Accurate Determination of DC50 and Dmax Values

Boost your screening workflow with Simple Western systems, while running up to 96 samples in a single run! In this application note, 120 samples were screened in just two overnight runs to provide highly quantitative data which allows for an accurate determination of DC50 and Dmax. Here, off-the-shelf antibodies from Novus Biologicals and PROTAC® degraders from Tocris were used to automatically profile PROTAC®-induced Cereblon neosubstrate degradation.
